I'm trying to see if you guys think this is a saddled female or just a lighter colored male.

Thanks!image


Here's my more perfect colored, bigger females hanging around in the moss

It's a female, but do you see anything under the saddle? You will usually see eyes or eggs. They will be yellow.

Thanks, how are you able to tell it's a female? I'm still learning my shrimp. I don't see anything under it yet. How long after a saddle shows up before I should see eggs?

I cant answer that but Ty o sex a very strong indicator is size and colour intensity
Thank you. I hope I have a couple males in here. All but one are pretty bright red and bigger. So one might be a male or just younger.
